Astrophysicists find triple star system with 'hot Jupiter'

Posted: 07 Apr 2016 07:17 PM PDT

Crisp, clear images of a "hot Jupiter" system captured by a physicist were vital in determining that a newly found planet inhabits a three-star system, a phenomenon documented only a few times before.

I wonder where the center of gravity is for this hot Jupiter planets orbit. And what a sight in the night sky.

Yeah, I really liked the artist's rendering of it.

Fantastic discoveries all the time, & no gawds in sight......hmmmmm......

Nice pictures

Can you imagine peering out at a sky with three Suns. Wouldn't that be weird.

.......and THEN maybe we'd learn to wear hats & sunscreen!!!!

Astronomers glimpse supernova shockwave for the first time

The brilliant flash of an exploding star’s shockwave — what astronomers call the “shock breakout” — has been captured for the first time in visible light by NASA's planet-hunter, the Kepler space telescope. Simulation credit: NASA/STSci.
